Genesis 1:24‑25; 1:30; 9:5; 9:9‑10; Exodus 9:9; 19:12-19; 23:10-11; Leviticus 20:15‑16; 27:28; Numbers 3:13; 8:17; Jasher 6:1-3; 6:9; 6:25; Leviticus 18:22‑29; 1 Samuel 17:42‑44; Jeremiah 7:20; 21:5-6; 27:6; 31:27‑30; Ezekiel 14:15; 29:11; Jonah 3:7-10; Daniel 4:25; Zechariah 8:10; Acts 10:12;� 2 Peter 2:12; Jude 1:10.

In all of these verses the beasts of the field or the beats of the earth are described as having hands. There is no animal on the face of the earth that has hands. The closest thing is the ape, monkey, and other animals like them; but none of them have hands they all have paws.

The second chapter of Genesis tells us Yahweh is looking for a suitable wife for Adam and brings in review before him what the King James Bible calls every BEAST OF THE FIELD, to see if a good wife for Adam could be found among them. Do you really think that an all wise Yahweh had to carefully look over a female scorpion, female toad, female giraffe, female horse (mare), or a female elephant, to decide whether one of these would be a suitable wife for Adam? Of course not, Moses didn�t write any such foolishness when he wrote the book of Genesis, this is purely the work of translators. In the original Hebrew, the account makes good sense and tells us much about the other races.

There are two closely related Hebrew words used here, �khah-ee� and �khaw-yaw,� each of which means a living creature. The meaning is far too broad to be translated merely beast or animal, for it includes all living creatures, from microbes to men. Where the King James Bible says beast of the field, the word is always either �khah-ee� or �khaw-yah.� So a correct translation would be THE LIVING BEINGS IN THE COUNTRY. That these living beings include men is clear from the same word being applied to Adam, read Genesis 2:7;

�And Yahweh formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a LIVING SOUL.�

In the Hebrew it reads,

�Then Yahweh God formed the Awdawm out of the dust of the ground and breathed in his nostrils breath of life; and the Awdawm became nephesh khaw-yah (a breathing creature having life).�

So the beast of the field, the �kaw-kaw-yah� of the field, or more correctly, the living beings in the countryside, actually included the pre-Adamic races.
